Beesley steps up for Yellows

Warrington Town have moved quickly to appoint Mark Beesley as their new manager.

Beesley, 40, was previously assistant to Paul Carden, who departed earlier this week to join National League North side AFC Telford United.

A striker during his playing days, Beesley had a brief spell at Cantilever Park on loan and played in the Conference for Chester City, Forest Green and Cambridge United.

He said: “I’m made up that the opportunity has been given to me to push on the work we’ve done.

“I didn’t hesitate – I had a good conversation with Paul about it and Toby, and we’re ready to carry it on.

“I do a lot of research and I have a lot of notes about what I would do if I became a manager again.

“I was really happy working with Paul but I thought at some point I wanted to challenge myself again.

“This opportunity came along and normally, when a new manager comes in the club is on its knees a bit.

“This is the total opposite. There’s a squad of players down there that’s excelling and it’s up to me to make sure that continues.”
